B.A. (Bachelor of Arts)

“Inside the 815”, my segment on NTC News Tonight, explored the various entertainment, dining and shopping options offered within the 815 area code. But instead of just reporting on the surface, I aimed my artistic vision to focus in on the underlying human-interest stories behind these concepts. I crafted six different news packages that were featured on air; I researched story ideas, set up pre-production arrangements, performed on-camera interviews, gathered background information, acted as my own photographer for most stories, executed stand-ups while producing, writing and editing my stories. My thesis materials on file are a burned disc and a YouTube page that can be found at www.youtube.com/LindseyGDiehl. (Both materials have the same content.)
